Troublemaker: A Novel

by Linda Howard


A thrilling, fast-paced novel of romantic suspense from sensational New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Howard.

For Morgan Yancy, an operative and team leader in a paramilitary group, nothing comes before his job. But when he’s ambushed and almost killed, his supervisor is determined to find out who’s after the members of his elite squad—and why. Due to worries that this unknown enemy will strike again, Morgan is sent to a remote location and told to lay low and stay vigilant. But between a tempting housemate he’s determined to protect and a deadly threat waiting in the shadows, keeping under the radar is proving to be his most dangerous mission yet.

The part-time police chief of a small West Virginian mountain town, Isabeau “Bo” Maran finally has her life figured out. She’s got friends, a dog, and a little money in the bank. Then Morgan Yancy shows up on her doorstep. Bo doesn’t need a mysterious man in her life—especially a troublemaker as enticing and secretive as Morgan.

The harder they fight the intense heat between them, the closer Morgan and Bo become, even though she knows he’s hiding from something. But discovering the truth could cost Bo more than she’s willing to give. And when Morgan’s cover is blown, it might just cost her life.

A Hand for the Duke (The Ladies' Wagering Whist Society Book 1)

by Meredith Bond


Can the Ladies of the Wagering Whist Society help an impoverished modiste win the hand of a sought-after Duke?


Tina Rowan is beautiful, talented—and wants nothing more than to be free of her past.
The illegitimate daughter of a baroness, she is being blackmailed by her own foster father. She must rely on her flair for designing dresses to earn enough to pay him off. Starting a business dressing the ladies of Regency society isn’t easy for a nobody. But Tina has three aces up her sleeve—her own amazing talent, her well-connected biological mother, and the helpful (if meddlesome) support of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society.

The handsome, arrogant Duke of Warwick has grown up schooled in the “proper” way for a nobleman to behave. Rule number one: do not fraternize with people of the lower classes. But when he has to introduce his beloved sister to society, he finds himself completely reliant on the beguiling woman he’s hired as his sister’s modiste. To his astonishment, he finds himself opening up to her and enjoying her company far, far too much.

When Tina discovers the true man behind the ducal title, her heart might very well be lost. But can the duke set aside his façade and allow himself to love the only woman who could possibly make him happy?


It will take the combined efforts of the Ladies’ Wagering Whist Society to see this difficult hand well played.

If you love a Cinderella story complete with a noble hero who will do anything to win the heart of the woman he loves, this book is for you!

Hot SEAL, Dirty Martini: An Enemies to Lovers Romantic Comedy (SEALs in Paradise)

by Paradise Authors


A Navy SEAL who wants seclusion. A diva who craves the spotlight. The deal they make could give them both what they need . . . if they don’t kill each other first! Reality TV has never been so hot!

Navy SEAL Clay "Dirtman" Hagan's retirement plans are simple. Buy the dilapidated beachfront cottage he found listed for a song, fix it up, and live out his days in solitude. Everything is set until an anonymous bidder drives up the price of his future paradise.


TV talk show host Tasha Jones is flying high, until one word—CANCELED—sends her crashing. Now she's looking to resurrect her career with a new home renovation show if they can get around the buyer standing in the way of the perfect property.

When the competition turns out to be the obnoxious a-hole from her embarrassing drunken one-night stand, the battle for the property really heats up as the insults—and the sparks—fly. The producer notices the chemistry between them and decides the viewers will too and "Hot House" is born.


If Clay agrees to have the self-centered star and her cameras in his house for the duration of the show, he walks away as the owner in the end. If Tasha can put up with living in the bungalow with the Neanderthal control-freak during the construction, she gets a hit show and her career back. Win-win.


It shouldn't be too hard since the director loves when they argue on camera, which is good since they agree on nothing. Well, almost nothing. They do both agree that they pretty much hate each other and neither one wants a repeat of their one night together . . . So why does it keep happening?

Jesus: Fib, Dead, or God?: Easy-to-Read Christian Apologetics for Evangelism

by James Finke


Friend- there are lots of religions out there. Why are you a Christian?

Most believers will talk about how they were raised, how God has improved their life, or how they know in their heart that it’s real.

It sounds good on the surface, but faith built on these things alone is liable to be knocked down by the next strong wind in your life. It’s the reason many people lose their way.

In other words, you’re focused on the wrong question.

Tragically, most people will spend their entire life dodging the most important question in history. They’ll get hung up on objections like:

  • The Christian faith and I have different views on social issues like abortion and gay marriage.
  • Some Christian groups are too intolerant.
  • I don’t like how some Christian groups meddle in politics.
  • Many Christians are hypocrites.
  • There are lots of religions, and I’m not sure only one has to be the right way.

 

That’s where this book comes in. Breakout author, James Finke, is back to help you cut through the noise and get at the structural integrity of the faith. Readers say it’s like having a friend personally explain it to you.

For Christians who are new to or perhaps have never even heard the term Christian Apologetics, get ready to level up. Your personal faith, and your ability to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others will never be the same.

That’s right. No more playing “spiritual whac-a-mole” with skeptics. You’ll learn to methodically and simply explain why Jesus Christ is the Chief Cornerstone of your life.

For Pastors, ministry leaders, and apologetics enthusiasts, this book will fit right into that open spot on your evangelism toolbelt.

It’s been nearly 2,000 years since Jesus of Nazareth asked, “Who do you say that I am?”. Still, it remains the most important question in history, asked by the most important person in history.

Are you ready? Let’s talk Jesus.

Bed and Breakfast and Murder (Fiona Fleming Cozy Mysteries Book 1)

by Patti Larsen


PEACE AND QUIET CAN BE MURDER!


Fiona Fleming had hoped inheriting her grandmother’s bed and breakfast and returning home to quiet Reading, VT would be a welcome escape from the city life in New York and her cheating ex-boyfriend. She figured the most excitement she’d face would be making beds, pesky customers and the awful stench coming from her grandmother’s ornery pug, Petunia. Instead, she finds herself elbow-deep in clogged toilets, the town blackmailer floating belly-up in her fish pond and she’s the prime suspect.

She's soon looking for answers in the seedy-side of the tiny town and winds up in dangers she never even faced in the city. While she is surrounded with help from the odd cast of characters in this bizarre town, she’s not sure who she can trust. Her back-up, however, consists of her flighty yet fashionable childhood friend, her grandmothers nosy neighbor and her beloved father who seems to have secrets of his own. Then there’s the buried treasure she can’t figure out and how to get her mind off of how great the new sheriff’s backside looks in his uniform.

Can Fiona uncover the truth before the handsome sheriff puts her behind bars instead of asking her out?

Book 1 in the Fiona Fleming Cozy Mystery series!
Can be read as a standalone but will be enjoyed more as part of the series.

A light, cozy mystery read with a reluctant dog loving female inn owner, in a small town setting with quirky characters.

Jesus Ascended. What Does That Mean?: Jesus’ Final 40-Day Lesson (Organic Faith Book 1)

by Scott Douglas


★★★  Discover the Power of the Ascension  ★★★

Something happened.

Jesus rose. But Christ didn't just rise from the dead. He ascended to Heaven.

We hear the stories about Peter and John and all the heroes of the New Testament, and they're unstoppable Christians--fearless and bold. And sometimes we wrongly assume that they just got that way. That Christ died for their sins, and bam! They're instantly changed! On the contrary, the disciples were actually quite cowardly in their actions after the Resurrection.

It wasn't until after the Ascension that they were on fire for Christ. So, what happened during the forty days? Something happened.

There's more written about Christ's ministry before his death than the events that happened after his Resurrection, but when we look at Ascension, we begin to see that there's power in small details. We begin to see that something happened after the Resurrection--something happened to transform the lives of believers and make them more than followers.

Looking at what happened after the Resurrection, and further at the Ascension of Christ, we start to see what happened to transform the followers--and in seeing this we might just be transformed ourselves.

Something did indeed happen during the forty days. Jesus was not done teaching.

This is the first book of the Organic Faith series. Each book in the series is a stand-alone title. The second book, Bethlehem, the Year Jesus Was Born, is also available.

A broken man will be forged in the flames of war...

It is late 1862, and the United States has been ripped apart by civil war for over a year with no end in sight. The war is a distant thought to Johannes Wolf, a young German immigrant with a crippled leg keeping him off the muster lists.

Wolf's company find themselves riding with Custer and the Michigan Brigade on a collision course with master horseman J.E.B. Stuart and the Army of Northern Virginia in a small town in Pennsylvania, called Gettysburg.

Will they stand tall against the knights of the South and prove themselves worthy? Or will they fall beneath screaming bullets and sweeping blades, becoming more bloody fodder for a lost cause?

Northern Wolf is a thrilling, historical page-turner packed with detailed passages of battle, the horrors of war, and the struggle to discover oneself. Fans of Bernard Cornwell, Jeff Shaara, Simon Scarrow, and Steven Pressfield will be captivated by this powerful new series. Start the adventure today!
